Last summer, I repainted my room, and lately I've decided I should paint a mural on my wall. I don't know what of yet. I was thinking like a mushroom or something with some yellow in it, because my room doesn't have enough yellow.

I'll try to attach a picture of the clock that I glued a back on it, and a picture of the wall I want to paint a picture on.

I kind of like psychedelic stuff.

You should have this adorning one side:
The will to neither strive nor cry,
The power to feel with others give.
Calm, calm me more; nor let me die
Before I have begun to live.

-Matthew Arnold

Arguments are to be avoided; they are always vulgar and often convincing.

Nah, it's pretty damn cool.

Unless you're into fucking abstract, or cubism, or all the other shitty times that look like vomit on canvas.

And you know John Donne....

The Flea is a personal favourite of mine

I must admit Donne isn't a favourite of mine. I have a particular liking for Victorian poetry though, despite not being able to stand the literature of the time. Matthew Arnold <3

Haven't come across him. Will have to research. And you're right, Victorian literature was in the main, appalling.

He wrote Dover Beach, if you're with Edexcel for literature and have to do the crappy anthology.

This is very rude of us, hi-jacking this poor man's thread.

All My Sons, Arthur Miller

Cold Mountain, Charles Frazier

The Millere's Tale, Geoffrey Chaucer

And Antony and Cleopatra, Bill Shakey.

I must be with OCR then =/
I get to do Beowulf (Seamus Heaney), Spies (can't remember who the damn author is), Henry V (good ol' Bill) and A Woman of No Importance (Wilde). Wilde and Shakespeare are quite good, but Beowulf makes me want to rip my heart out and let it pound its final few beats on the cold wooden surface.

But it's past midnight and I'm going out shopping tomorrow, so good night
